Walleye and sauger report

Over the last week and a half the bite has been really good both pitching and dragging bait.  When pitching we have been throwing plastics jig and crawler, leaches, and crank baits.  We have also been trolling up some really nice walleyes with the rig.  

Pictured below is Tim from Texas.  We went out on a very windy day on Sunday and had a great time trolling cranks and dragging jigs.  Seemed like the walleyes we caught were very aggressive after the spawn most of them we needed to use the pliers to get the hooks out of there throats.  It was a great time Tim and I look forward to another day with you in the future.  

Marty is pictured here with some crappies we set out to catch this week and also the biggest walleye of the day this week. Marty as usual it was fun and agin windy on our trip hopefully you get rid of that cold you got soon. 

We have been fishing in water depths from 4 to 11 feet to target our walleyes and saugers this week. Water temperature has dropped a little from the weekend and now with the rains it's going to start coming up a little.  

Good luck out there guys and gals !!!!!!!
